UFC fight bookings roundup – 12/17 – 12/24

The UFC has booked another slew of fights over the last week. Here is a quick rundown of what they put together.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Since the UFC has decided to produce 50+ events in 2014, there is a remarkable amount of fighter signings and new match-ups being set up throughout any given week. Many of these new signings are for match-ups that take place on the undercard, or on the Fight Pass portion of a PPV, so we are going to continue with a new weekly (or bi-weekly if needed) series of articles where we take a brief look at each and every bout booked by the promotion in one place.

UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Siver

A new lightweight match-up has been added to the UFC's special Sunday fighth card in Boston, Massachusetts between Johnny Case and debuting competitor Frankie Perez. Francisco Trevino was originally scheduled to face Case but suffered an undisclosed injury and was forced off the card.

UFC Fight Night: Evans vs. Teixeira

A handful of fights have been slotted onto the UFC Fight Night card next February in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The event, which is headlined by a light-heavyweight title fight between Glover Teixeira and former champion Rashad Evans, will now feature Rustam Khabilov vs. Adriano Martins, Cezar Ferreira vs. Sam Alvey, T.J. Waldburger vs. Wendell de Oliveira Marques, Ivan Jorge vs. Josh Shockley, and Santiago Ponzinibbio vs. Sean Strickland.
